Player name: Sunwing34

How did you find out about us: Was googling dwarven cities and Thorin’s Halls popped up.

How old are you?: 29

Where are you from?: UK

Are you in our Discord? Do you understand that you must have Discord running at all times when at your computer, and that you must check the forums every few days?: Aye, and aye.

Why do you want to help with this project?: It’s Tolkien. I don’t feel the need to say more. :stuck_out_tongue:

Which Tolkien-related works have you read, seen or listened to?: Films mainly, but I delve into the lore quite a bit too.

Plot ID: 0:17

Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?: I like to think I’m pretty good at Dwarven builds, which is part of the reason I’m applying, because you’re rounding off Thorin’s Halls and moving on to Moria soon, I believe. I know I need to work on my interiors, and maybe Elven builds.

Hey, thank you for applying! Could you please post some more pictures of your Rohan house? Hard to judge it with just two screens. As for the dwarven one, since Thorin’s Halls is almost complete, it’s not a style requested for the application anymore. Could you build one in the Caras Galadhon’s style? You can find a detail guide at /warp Loeringuide. Hope to see you update your app soon.

seeing this apply features a Dwarven house. how well is it mentioned that dwarven isnt a relevant style for applying anymore. could let it go for this one ofc seeing u already put huge amounts of efforts into it. but i would like to note to any overseer or whoever reads this that dwarven houses arent relevant anymore for a new builder at least until we start moria.

u mention us moving to moria soon however i dont see this happening as soon as th is finished but a while later because of new textures we need. also housing isnt nearly as relevant for moria amd in general Ths dwarven style will be quite different from morias dwarven style due to different ground types ect.

Ah.

The only reason I’ve done the Thorin’s Hall one is because that’s one of the options mentioned at the Hub, my apologies. Caras Galadhon and more Rohan pictures incoming.

owh sorry if it seemed like i was blaming u for doing dwarven cause i wasnt. i was just asking in a more general way to overseers ect.

More Rohan pictures, and a Caras Galadhon toolmaker’s workshop.

Your Caras house is good, you are ready for Apprentice!

Being an Apprentice means you are a part of the project, but not a full Builder yet. You have this rank so you can learn and understand how we build. We have high standards and a focus on realism which means that there are things for you to learn. Your duties as an Apprentice should give you good grounding to become a Builder, and, as such, you will begin your first lot of on-server building work assisting current Builders on their builds. This will hopefully allow you to obtain the experience needed to build on your own when you feel you can start on building something on your own.

When building as an Apprentice, you are only permitted to build on one building at a time. This not only provides you with good practice for your time as a Builder, but also allows project leaders and Overseers to get a good and clear idea of what your building abilities are. This will allow us to give you better and more bespoke feedback, and prevent any unnecessary problems. Finally, as an Apprentice you must always listen to project leaders when they give you feedback, criticisms, and tasks. Ask them if you are unsure of what to build, or how to build it. You have this rank to learn.

In order to eventually obtain Builder, please read the guidelines below.

When you build a house in a project and think it is finished, you should post a comment on this application thread with the closest warp and coordinates of your house. Then Builders or Overseers will comment on this thread and give you fair feedback. When you have achieved a standard of building that matches the basic standard of the server, you will be promoted to Builder. This could be on your first build or one further down the line. ArdaCraft is a friendly community that explores the freedom to create and build together. However, when we are dealing with an enormous project like this there are some guidelines we need to follow to make it work.

Firstly, always name the stuff you build. We have a set of project blocks that we use - you can read about those in the new player guide at ‘/warp spawn’.

Secondly, if you are looking for something to help out with, you can type ‘/warp jobs’. This is where you can find all open jobs like building houses or something similar. You will be provided with instructions on how to get to these projects, and what to build once you get there.

Thirdly, do not be afraid to ask members for help and get to know us. This is a community project and it’s important to be part of the community! Stay active on Discord and the forums. Make sure to let Beathaven know who you are on Discord so that he can give you the appropriate rank on there.

Good luck!

Checked it out, i’d say quite good overall, apart from the ceiling, which will have to be redone. Hit me up on discord when you’re online and i’ll hop on aswell to show you what i mean.
